Tonight, I watched many of the Cowboys shorts by Phil Mulloy. They are all very similar in that they feature black painted animation and it's very, very, very simple and not particularly attractive and lacks fluidity. Perhaps it was meant to look this way deliberately, but technically speaking this wasn't exactly a pretty film.
The point of this film appears to be to say that the cowboys of the 19th century were all greedy jerks whose only real values were money and putting up fences to keep out the next guy. While I think there was a point to this, its very simplistic message didn't work completely. However, I did laugh once or twice at the film so it is better than some of the more "adult" installments of this short series.
